Recommend this to readers of Goosebumps or Harry Potter! A impressive summer read magical enough to blow your mind!/5(2).

The Headless Cupid is one of those great YA novels that deals with big issues in an entertaining way. The book is nominally about the supernatural, but really it’s about the challenges facing a blended family, and the ways in which pre-adolescents can react badly or well to change.

Get this from a library! The headless Cupid. [Zilpha Keatley Snyder; Alton Raible] -- Life is never quite the same again for eleven-year-old David after the arrival of his new stepsister, a student of the occult. Prior to reading The Headless Cupid, I have already gone over Snyder’s The Witches of Worm and found it more disturbing than amusing – that book has a darker quality to it, in contrast to The Headless Cupid that is more entertaining and comical in essence (will write a review about that soon).
